Abstract: Agave baggase is a sub-product that is generated after the production of alcoholic beverages in México, such as tequila, this being a lignocellulosic material, classified as biomass of second generation with high potential to be valorizated under the concept of biorefinery. Their rigid structure consist mainly of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin, which makes it difficult to access enzymatic attack or the conversion into other products.
